and if'n you google it, I got one hit on a Youtube

it ain't in Lillington

**think about the gout

where does it usually cause pain? edit think river

**think absence of all colors (hint: not dealing with paint, dealing with refracted light)
edit think major geophysical feature

** county starts with 25th letter

since I'm gonna be traveling tomorrow evening I'm being generous with clues

edit the road changes its name when it crosses a paved road going up hill. to get the name of the other road, Lynyrd Skynyrd sang a ballad about a picker whose last name wasn't high and his first name is the give-away.

hey gal

I didn't ride up either road from there as it was getting late and I wanted to grab the "other" tag (Been there - maybe game), so I went up and down the paved road.

I didn't see any signs saying either was closed and the gate was open going up along the river.

if it was me, I'd see if the way up the hill from the flatlands was open, cross over and go that way. If Mr Loew's road is closed (see musical clue), go up the paved way, you know, Male Deer Gap.

Obscure enough?

Back 21DEC from Alaska, I keep thinking I'll run over for Wedgeday, just never have a chance

Have a Happy Turkey DaY!!

If the gate is open a few hundred yards from you tag, the road is open

btw Wedgeday is today - starting at 6:03pm, so get dressed and come on over (or take the cage - nobody will blame you)

arghhhhh!!!!!

after my carefully elusive clues, you just blurt it out!!!

didn't go up that way either

yeah it's running and so is the dryer and so is the vacuum cleaner.

being gone for a month at a time requires a tiny bit of effort.

Yeah drive to Charlotte
Fly to Minneapolis
Fly to Anchorage (at least I got my first class upgrade on that segment so I.
can sleep)
Arrive Anchorage about 12:30 a.m. ( 4:30 a.m. Eastern)
Crash @ the boss's house
Catch the British Petroleum jet at 2 p.m. to Deadhorse
Arrive Deadhorse 4:00 PM
Start counting days until 21Dec

Current temp Anchorage 4 deg F w/ snow & freezing rain
Current temp Prudhoe Bay is -23 deg F (feels like -42)

The things I do for $$ & time off to ride (sigh)
No beer/alkyhaul until the flight out (sigh)
Just prime rib, rib-eyes, salmon, etc
